Jacob O’Connell: Princeton Lands Commit From St. Joe's Prep Talented Big Man


Jacob O’Connell is going to a high-major, and the academics are outstanding as well. The St. Joe’s Prep junior just committed to Princeton and Tigers coach Mitch Henderson.


The 6-foot-11 big man said Princeton became a front-runner over several other Ivy League and Patriot League schools in January.
“They showed the most interest in me out of probably every school,” O’Connell said. “Really I was the kid that they wanted in my class. I’m the kid that fits their style of play perfectly. Obviously the school and the academics and all of that, that speaks for itself.”

“I told them, ‘You don’t even need to sell me on the school, I already know all about that.’ I just wanted to talk basketball, see what they envisioned for me,” O’Connell said. “Coach Henderson literally went up to the whiteboard there and drew out exactly what they’d have me do in their offense.”
